YouTube sensation Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg recently uploaded a TwitchCon compilation video, where the Swede hilariously reacted to some of the most awkward moments from this year’s event.

While Kjellberg made fun of Fortnite fans, the Doritos bowl and Ninja, the Swede spent the largest portion of his video talking about Michael ‘mmDust’ Duarte.

The streamer became the focus on the internet’s attention after comments he made at a TwitchCon panel, where he stated: “It’s kind of like low-key god complex, [but] I don’t think many of my viewers should relate themselves to me because I do think of myself as better.

“There’s no good way to say this – I think of myself as above the average person, so I don’t think many people could relate to me.”

“I think that what makes this clip so great is that he knows he’s not supposed to say it,” began PewDiePie. “If you’re ever in that moment, don’t cross the border.

“I just love how you’re a streamer, the kind of person that relies on donations from other people. You’re basically begging other people for money but you’re still better than other people.

“I’m going to out on a limb and say no, you’re not. You’re 100% not better than the average person. Anyone who thinks they are better than the average person are 100% not better than the average person,” concluded PewDiePie.

PewDiePie said that he believes if Duarte had made the comment in jest nobody would have cared, but trying to justify it by admitting there was “no good way” to say it made it look worse.

UPDATE (October 13, 7PM PT): Mere hours after Elon Musk confirmed that his Overwatch main was Torbjorn, the Overwatch developers released a video showcasing a newly buffed version of the Damage hero, per his request.

Elon Musk asked for a buff to Torb’s turret and that’s exactly what he got. In the same day that his main hero was made public, the Overwatch team fulfilled his requests and gave Torb one of his biggest buffs to date in a hilarious bite-sized clip.

The video shows Torb’s deployable turrets soaring off the ground. Three of them remained floating in the sky all at once, blasting down any foe that dared to step out on the moon.

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
